I support Mitt Romney
A little background about myself: I emigrated from USSR as a child, work as IT director in NY, reside in FL where I own a house with my wife. I’ve voted republican since 1996 (first able to vote), but paid attention to politics since 1992 or so. 1994 will always be synonymous with Newt to me. He was my hero. It was about that time when | Read More »
Newt demands Applause in Debates, or else!
Poor Newt! Gingrich Threatens to Skip Debates if Audiences Can’t Participate. Mr. Gingrich, a former House speaker, on Tuesday morning threatened not participate in any future debates with audiences that have been instructed to be silent. That was the case on Monday, when Brian Williams of NBC News asked the audience of about 500 people who assembled for a debate in Tampa to hold their applause until | Read More »
Gov. Bob McDonnell (VA) backs Romney
Not much coverage of any positive Romney developments here, so as one of the at least 30% of the partisan GOP electorate supporting Governor Romney I’ll post this good news: Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell announced he was backing GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney Friday, saying his support could help Romney win Saturday’s hotly-contested South Carolina primary. “I’m a Southern governor endorsing Mitt Romney in the | Read More »

A question for Conservatives
I used to call myself a Conservative. Now I just call myself Rightwing. I still vote down the line republican for SoCons or FisCons. I am an atheist and after being socially conservative on gay marriage and abortion, I’ve done a 180 degree turn on both issues. Rationally I could not find a non-religious justification for opposing gay marriage or abortion rights in at the | Read More »
Who would you support, Israel or Iran?
From the “non-extremists” on the Left who will get wiped out tomorrow:
Authoritarian Socialism producing results in Venezuela
It’s amazing! MSNBC posts a NYT article that is critical of Venezuela. Venezuela endures worse murder rate than Iraq. A lot worse. Who knew that things have not been going well in that Socialist Paradise to the south, that the liberals are so proud of? In Iraq, a country with about the same population as Venezuela, there were 4,644 civilian deaths from violence in 2009, | Read More »
Kudos to Kos for honesty
The liberal Daily Kos website got defrauded by the pollster they’ve used for quite a long time. Many people, especially on the Right, have been skeptical over their consistently liberal-favoring numbers, but I could not have imagined the scope of the fraud. From my somewhat mathematical, if not statistical, background it looks like the numbers have been either manually adjusted or completely made up without | Read More »
The People’s Republic of Greece is almost upon us.
WSJ reports that S&P downgraded Greece to Junk Status today severely limiting the proud Democratic Socialist nation’s options of getting out of its mostly self-inflicted crisis. “The downgrade results from our updated assessment of the political, economic and budgetary conditions that the Greek government faces in its efforts to put the public debt burden onto a sustained downward trajectory,” said S&P credit analyst Marko Mrsnik. Earlier | Read More »
Now is the Time
We are staring into the abyss of Government controlled Healthcare and the Democrats are incredibly close to pushing us in. This weekend is like an emergency room visit and it is almost at a point where only our will and determination has any last chance to succeed in blocking this monstrosity. The Obama administration has had many opportunities in the MSM to present their point of | Read More »
New ARG Poll in MA continues to show good news
A new <a href=”http://americanresearchgroup.com/“>ARG poll that just came out</a> for MA shows good news continuing for Brown. Likely voters will vote 48% for Brown to 45% for Coakley. Additionally: A total of 9% of likely voters say they have already voted by absentee ballot, with Brown leading Coakley 58% to 42%. Can’t wait!
A sinister joke with Real World implications
Very few people, aside from the leftist kooks living in the lala land, really believe that President Obama has done anything that merits a supposed honor that a Nobel Peace Price bestows. Putting the political joke of the Nobel Peace Price itself aside, as well as disregarding the previous recipients (Terrorist Arafat, Anti-Semite Carter, Environmentalist Fairy Gore, North Korean Peace Lover Kim Jong Il, etc), | Read More »
An apology for a ill-conceived idea
Two days ago I posted a A Modest Proposal for Social Change which was quite obviously not well thought out. I came up with the idea after talking to a liberal co-worker of mine. We were discussing the reasons for the drop of crime in New York City and he suggested (after reading Freakanomics) that legalizing abortion had a lot to do with it, of | Read More »
A Modest Proposal for Social Change
Social Conservatives mostly oppose abortion, while Liberals mostly support the right to have one. There are few areas of agreement on the subject between the two sides. I have no interest in addressing the subject directy but have an idea that may appeal to most people no matter your views. The idea of paying for someone else’s abortion is very objectionable to most people, but | Read More »
The fallacy of “democratically elected” mantra.
In the American New Left’s eyes, being “democratically elected” absolves you of all evil past, present and future and grants teflon legitimacy impervious to criticism. If you dare to question the actions of the democratically elected leftists (yes it only applies to the Left or terrorists) you will be castigated as an authoritarian fascist. We’ve seen it with the Left’s insistence on negotiations with Hamas, | Read More »
